The move is a natural progression in the aftermath of a sponsorship deal that was signed by XTrade with Cristiano Ronaldo. The firm has become the first brokerage to market its products through a single football player.

The agreement is likely to have cost a substantial investment, which the parent company of Xtrade is now taking to bigger use after phasing out its XForex brand. The latter was previously operated by OCM Holdings LTD, a Cypriot company that has been renamed 'XFR Financial Ltd'.
